i changed again to a CM7 rom port for u8220 , because of some bugs.

the message space to chat doesn't refresh all times, i need to click on other element on the screen and touch to write again and it shows what i write, but doesnt shown new "chars".
another one made me get back, is about, while receiving a call, the block screen stucks, and a needed to take off the batery and restart all again :/

hope it will help

  • I have the same problem on the message space. Characters simply don't appear on the screen until the line changes.
  • I have another problem: i cant install v0.2. It says the following message:
Amend scripting (update-script) is no longer supported. 
Amend scripting was deprecated by Google in Android 1.5. (...) 
Please switch to Edify scripting (updater-script and update-binary) 
to create working update zip packages.

This is a dream port and makes me wonder what a old hardware like that of Pulse can still do.
Pros-
1. Super fast but not that smooth for first few minutes of use but gets better somehow.
2. Wi-fi works flawlessly.
3. Darktremor A2sd support and 30mb RAM always available.
4. Can play Age of Empire :D which wouldn't even start in other Roms.
and many more.
Cons-
1. The first and really HUGE con is the battery life. Battery drains at a speed of 1% per 2-3 seconds even if you dont use it hard. Really astonishing. Playing a game drained 20% of battery in 5 minutes.
2. I dont recieve calls instantaneously. There is a delay of about 15 seconds between the call is connected and when i get it on my phone.

Thank you for posting your testing results.


In the first few minutes swap is still in "startup" so when the it is filled with several apps everything should then work almost flawlessly.

All A2SD options should work (DT, M2SD, amarulz not tested).

Battery life could be prolonged, use min 245 Mhz and max no more than 691 Mhz (710 Mhz and up dramatically increases battery consumation, tested on 729 Mhz and uses extremely battery).

Calls could be related to Swap swappiness, use 40 or larger and a task manager to clear background apps. I am currently a day and 12 hours active on same battery charge (used with WiFi on 1 hour and screen on for 1h 45 min). ;)

Thank you for posting your testing results.

I am more then happy to test new roms as long as i have a Pulse- (the phone not real one) and as long as someone like yourself is willing to help the community. I wish i could do more then just testing but i don't really have that much knowledge.

As far as testing goes i was really fed up of the battery thing and just had to move on. And i moved on or rather i downgraded. I installed JOYos 1.2.2 posted by you and was shocked to see the Iphon-i-ness in that rom. I mean the Lockscreen, Call screen, Settings, And specially the LAUNCHER was just so much identical to the apple's marvel phone.
So what happened with 1.2.4? Nothing related to iphone. It has Holo launcher, Android's call screen and much boring stuff. Hence i wanted to know something- I am skeptical if this is the right place to ask or shall i post this on Joyos 1.2.2's page but anyways-

1. Given the battery backup you are saying you got on those settings in 1.2.4 is there a way of making it look identical to 1.2.2?
If not possible-
2. Could you please tell me how to get 1.2.4's startup screen in 1.2.2 ,i.e, the apple's logo and loading icon below?

I hate it when it lags so if has to look like an I-phone(not that bad actually ) to work flawlessly i would go for it!!!
Otherwise I too am in support of android's look but couldn't find any other rom as good as this one.

Sorry, not a big iPhone fan... If there are interested users I could sum up a more iPhoenish update for flashing which will remove some more Android like apps and add exDialer as default dialer (JoyOS dialer not ready yet) and change framework to more iPhone colors.

I will see if there is enough interested users and add that update, please reply.

Well i am bored(a bit) of iphone too but this rom is by far the fastest imo and i guess that is because of the Joy launcher. I have tried other launchers on this rom namely ESPIER and ADW launcher and found each launcher to be good and snappy but Joy launcher force closes lesser number of times and is responsive all the times(may lag a couple of times but wont force close or stall). And if a Rom is based on Iphone then let it be based on it in every possible manner.

Anyways I dont think there are enough Pulse users left :( leave aside using this rom.

You must keep up the good work though.
:)
Also any good replacement for gallery and video apps in 1.2.2?

You must have done it wrong then.
Extract the zip v0.1 and v0.2 files and replace only the boot.img file in v0.1 from v0.2. Do not replace the other files i.e. the meta-inf folder. Then use 7-zip to compress(which is best imo) these files back to zip. Remember to select the 3 files i.e. meta-inf folder,replaced boot.img file and system folder and add them to zip and not add the folder you extracted them to zip.
Just remember to select the files and add them to zip.

Sorry for not responding earlier (all up in ICS testing... :P )

For gallery you can use - Ultra Gallery (modern fast look) and for video - Video Player (android code monkey) with ICS look, for iPhoneish look - HD Video player (turlerun)

For other formats (AVI, DIVX,...) take your pick from the market (personally MX, Mobo and QQPlayer always were OK on Pulse)...
